Independent Contractor Process

Step 1:  Department (requestor) to fill out the INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR-FORM A (located on the HR Website under Manager Toolkit/Staffing) By answering the questions on this form, this allows the university HR team to determine if the person should be considered an employee or can truly perform services as an independent contractor.   Once department completes the form and submits, it goes to for review and approval.

Step 2:   If HR has approved FORM A, they will send an email approving the submitted form back to the requestor.  

Step 3:   Requestor then submits the email approval of the FORM A along with other pertinent information to the Request for Contract Review Portal (found on the Office of Legal Affairs website).     In the type of contract field, select Goods/Services/Software and continue to complete the requested information.   Upon submission of the contract request, it will route to the procurement manager who will assign a contract team member to complete the agreement request. 

All of these steps must be taken PRIOR to engaging with any person performing services on behalf of the university. 

Step 4:  Submit invoices to Accounts Payable using the direct pay form.
